Re: Wifi going down

farmerhugh, 

If you look to the left on the picture you posted, you'll see a setting that says "Change Adapter Settings" (pic 1).  Click on that.  Right click on the adapter (mine says Ethernet) (pic 2) and click Properties.  Then click "Configure" (pic 3).  After clicking Configure, click on "Power Management" (pic4).  Then you should see the picture that Gwalk posted.  Make sure the highlighted item is NOT checked.  If it is, uncheck it and click Okay.

Re: Wifi going down

Remember that a laptop will have two adaptors, one for wired and one for wireless.

here are mine (Win7)

Wired on the left, wireless on the right.


Clicking on an adaptor opens the screen on the left:

Clicking "properties" in the left screen opens the screen on the right. In the right hand screen select the "Power Management" tab,

Remember to do this on both the wired and wireless adaptors.
